Country Cooking with the Booker's

Country Cooking with the Booker's Welcome. Our recipes bring back memories of times past. We don't cook fancy but mostly like Granny did. She could make a ham sandwich taste like filet mignon.

We hope you find our page enjoyable and useful.

Using a meat mallet beat each fillet to tenderize it then cut in half. Lay each piece in the buttermilk. In a separate plate mix flour, bread crumbs and seasoning. Heat oil until hot but not smoking.

Good foggy morning. Here's a recipe I conjured up last night and to say the least we enjoyed it. You can use up your leftover ham from the holidays.
Skillet Cordon Bleu Hillbilly Style
Ingredients :
4 boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into small pieces)
Ham (cut into small cubes)
1 Can each cream of mushroom and cream of chicken
1/2 block Swiss cheese (grated)
1 Bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Can sliced mushrooms
1 Bag flat noodles (cooked)
Cook your chicken with a tiny bit of cooking oil until almost done and add your ham. Continue cooking on medium to finish cooking the chicken and heating up the ham. When done, add your mushroom just long enough to heat. Drain your noodles and add the 2 cans of soup to the noodles. Mix real good and add your meat mixture to the pot of noodles. Add your cheese to the mixture and cook on med to medium low to reheat everything and melt the cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. It's done !! Fix some good garlic toast and enjoy 😋😋
